Are you looking ways to send emails in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, or Malayalam. You can use the Gmail’s Indic Transliteration feature, to send email in Indian languages. Currently Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam are supported. When you type message in English, Gmail will automatically convert the word to its Indian local language equivalent (This feature need to be enabled ). This feature enhances the usability of the Gmail service for non-English users.
For ex, “namaste” we will transliterate to Hindi “नमस्ते”, and “vanakkam” in Tamil will become “வணக்கம்”. Press Ctrl+g to toggle between English and selected language.
